(Successful candidate)
"I have had a few different positions throughout my career, and I was normally headhunted. I have always had a good experience with headhunters, but what differentiates Nurole from the traditional headhunter is that it attracts a much greater breadth of talent, because of the way it works. It helps the companies structure their searches in a very clear way and it ticks all the boxes that I, as an employer, have always focused on during a search process. It does that really well, but what I think it does really fantastically is feedback. I get regular feedback on what’s going on, why the process is taking longer than expected, what the decision was, etc. That is often not the case when you work with a traditional headhunter."
